Underpass Self Storage of Walkertown - Christopher White

I have 2 questions that I need help with. We are getting ready to open our facility. We have 159 units with 50% of them being climate controlled. As you can tell by my questions we are new to this business. First , where do we buy the locks from and how much do you usually sell to the tenants for? Next, what software do you recommend if we don't want to go the U-haul route? Thanks for your help.

We buy our locks from Packaging Supply Direct. They are a NCSSA vendor.
I would say most people want to at least double their money on the locks. We have at least a 300% mark up on locks.
So far as softwares there are many, SiteLink, Storage Commander and the list goes on.
SiteLink is probably the most widely used.

Chateau Products and Move ‘N Store are also good sources for locks as well as moving supplies. We buy our boxes from Packaging Supply Direct.

Chateau Products for supplies, and I like Easy Storage Solutions for software (we run the entire unit rental process online with this company).
